RE: Calculation Software

Right, Christopher.

I was just making the point that you can't (or shouldn't) use names like P1.
Personally, I would rather name the variable that's a little easier like
P_1, but that's a personal preference.

FYI, I usually have an "=" in the cell to the left of the cell I want to
name, so the Name/Create method won't work. Even w/o the "=", my version
doesn't automatically add the underscore. That must be a "value added
feature" on the Mac version :o).

You can if you enter it as P1_. Or just use the Create Names menu pick, 
and it'll name the cells according to the strings in the cells to the 
left, right, above or below, as you desire. If you have an illegal name, 
like P1 it'll automatically add the underscore.
